A big part of what holds up blog posts is trying to figure out what to say about the events that happen in this pretty life of mine; how to make the writing meaningful and somewhat decent can be a struggle.  I do still very much want to share what’s going on, so I’ve decided to cut out the writing bit, and just post the photos I’ve taken. Maaaaybe I’ll write a few words for the sake of context.

We spent the weekend down in Carpinteria/ Santa Barbara with Maude, Ben, and that baby Frances who I just can’t get enough of.  Oh and a new little puppy. Yes, I spent the weekend in palm tree paradise with babies and puppies.   Thanks for having us in your world made of rainbows, and tacos, and flowers, and rose farms, and sunshine, and blueberries, and laughs, Maude & Ben… and the Potters for the delicious muffins that fell straight out of Martha Stewart Living.

happy thanksgiving!

Posted on November 28, 2013

I wanted to pop in to say hello, and a very happy thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you guys have some stellar plans on the docket for this long weekend. What’s on your menu for today?

I have already had my fair share of Thanksgiving dishes due to overbooking my friendsgiving plans (first world problems) so instead of mashing some potatoes with butter, I plan to toast up some Josey Baker bread, top it with ricotta cheese, butternut squash and crispy sage in the spirit of all things orange. A few things I’m thankful for…

This year, I’m thankful for: butternut squash, California wine, The Mill, Big Sur, snapchat, Frances Poppy, group texts, sunday hike club, and both of my families on separate coasts.

I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by from last Thanksgiving, and I’m honestly in awe of how well this whole life thing has been working out lately. I can’t help but think that it has to do with the people around me, so for that, I am incredibly thankful.  Love you guys.

california, etc.

Around these sunnier parts, every day feels like an adventure. Sometimes that includes hiking along the Pacific Coast, and sometimes it’s dodging the crazies on Muni.  All adventures are not created equal.

September wouldn’t have been complete without stand up paddle boarding in Tahoe, snuggling my favorite pumpkin Poppy in Carpinteria, watching Mary and Alex get married in a storybook wedding in Santa Maria, and hiking along the edge of the ocean on a Tennesee Valley hike.  Not sure that things could get better at this point.


Happy November guys! See you soon (ish).
